OMG....don't snort them!!! Oxycodines are a form of percocet without the tylenol in them!! I was addicted to percocets, and if you ask me, I would prefer a percocet anyday over any oxycodine!!! But that's besides the point!! Make sure that you do only take them for your back pain, and if you don't need to take that many....then don't cause they are highly addictive!!! I hope you get well!!

Is the percocet your are refering to the same as Roxicodone?
They are small blue 30 mg.  Oxycodone is the generic, and the doc has had me on those for over a year now.  He writes it for 240 a month which I never take, but I think I can deal with the pain better w/ those than the 40 mg Oxcontin.

He wrote a script for 60 40's a couple of weeks ago, and I have ot had it filled yet.

Thanks for the info.

You are wrong.

Oxycodone (no, not oxycodeine, as that doesn't exist) is an opiate analgesic with similar strength to morphine. Oxycodone HCl is Oxycodone Hydrochloride, or the salt, which is suitable for ingestion, injection, insuffulation, whatever you prefer. CL stands for controlled release, which is commonly known as a "Contin", as in OxyContin, MS-Contin, etc. So, what you have my friend, is 10 mg. Controlled Release Oxycodone Hydrochloride. OxyContin, or a generic equiv. Recreational dosage is higher than 10 mg., and is usually taken in the form of crushing and snorting, or simply just chewing the pills, as this defeats the purpose of the time releasing agent. Be warned though, this releases the whole dose of Oxycodone into your system at once, which, if your not careful, could result in an overdose. Opiates are also known for their high addiction potential. Just for reference, Percocet is often 325 mg. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and 5 mg. Oxycodone. Percocet is Immeadiate Release, but you'd be more likely to overdose on Acetaminophen than the Oxycodone. (This, of course, depends entirely on your opiate tolerance)

hey...what happened for him to write you that much narcotic pain meds?? WoW! When I was messing up real heavy you would have been a gold mine to me LOL Try to lighten myself up don't mind the comment. Yes, those little blue things, they are basically percocet, just different name! that's alot of 30 mg percs to get a month, and then he gives you oxy's too?? You should tell him that you don't want all that, with all that floating around you could get an extremely bad habit!!! A very painful one, them pills suck the life out of you, they did me, I haven't tooken any percocets in 10 days (with the acception that I messed up yesterday and took 2 5mg oxycodines....which is perk without the tylenol in them) But I am brushing myself off and trying again! but yea, that's what they basically are, PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THOSE THINGS!!!

WOW!! You know alot...I was going off what I was told, and if course the effect and the way i have felt off of the pills i have taken before! Well...I am sorry for being wrong, and sorry I spelled oxycodone wrong! Glad there was someone who knew a lil more then me to come clarify that for him!! So, thanks! You learn something new everyday, so oxycodones are basically oxycotins?? That's crazy, OMG I never knew that! You should post a question on here, (not really a question) and let us all  know what you know about certain pills...it would help alot of us here, and alot of newcomers!!! Thanks for correcting me!!!

yes the doc still write scripts for 240 30's (roxicodone) and 60 oxycontin 40's.
I have taken several scripts back because there is no way a human can take all that.
He did tell me I was the first patient he had that he has ever broght back Oxycontin prescriptions.

You need a new doctor, at the rate he is prescribing you, you will be well on your way to the grave, jail or detox.  Or just a few years of total hell.

unfortunately patients no longer feel comfortable asking any medical professional any questions regarding narcotic and/or controlled substance medications due to all of the negative press and despite the privacy act of 2003 law passed to "protect the patients medical records"- (HIPPA), it still does not keep some pharmacists, doctors, nurses, receptionists, medical billers, office managers, ect... from forming an opinion when a patient is given a script for pain meds, anxiety meds, insomnia meds, depression meds and (GASP!) erectile dysfunction meds, ect... Yes absolutely these medications are highly addictive and highly abused- and the "Good-VS-Bad" debate over narcotics will not ever cease. I have been a medical professional for over 14 years~ and sadly- there honestly is no REAL "Patient Privacy". More times than not if a patient calls requesting a refill or a change in medication or they pick up thier RX a day early from the pharmacy; before they even make it out the door- the pharmacy staff and/or medical office staff are already gossiping, forming opinions, and "gasping" over what medications you're on- and even more so about your diagnosis- why you are on such medications and shaming the doctor for starting narcotic medical therapy- and shaming the patient for having the unfortunate need for such therapy. Truth be told- there are no two identical genetic make-ups with any carbon based life form- what works for one patient may not work for another; you may have a 300 pound man take one 5mg percocet and be knocked out for hours- while a 118 pound female can take 20mg of percocet and function normal all day long. My point is that just because someone has a "non-text book non-socially acceptable" question about a narcotic such as how they are abused and why does not mean that they are seeking "how to" instructions- they may be asking because they want to be informed due to a loved ones possible addiction and abuse and they want/need to know what signs to look for. Dont be so quick to judge- Karma just may come back around and bite you in the *** and you may find yourself being the victim of prejudice and some receptionist/office staffs "muse" and gossip of the break room just because cancer, disease, or an accident left you in chronic pain and the medical necessity for narcotic therapy just to function to any degree of normality that used to be your life.

I just recently stopped getting shots in my back for pain and now that the shots are wearing off my body is hurting really bad. Every morning I wake up feeling like I got ran over by a train.  My Dr has given me Oxycodone and they are 10 mg. I'm needing to take 4 of these every 4 hours. Is this a normal dose for chronic pain? I stopped the shots because of the new procedures for back pain is suppose to last longer than the shots and I'm wondering if not having the shots will cause my body to do this and I'm actually going thru withdraws. Then I think that it's been 5 months sice the last shots and it could be possible, right?

that is A LOT of tylenol you are ingesting.  ask for something with less tylenol because you will destroy your liver
